Derek’s Daily 45 II: A Mixtape / Psych, Freakbeat, Garage – 1966-68


We’re back with Bay area crate digger, dj and musician, Derek See – the man behind the long-running ode to the 45 RPM record, Derek’s Daily 45.  Psychedelia, garage, freakbeat, acid rock – call it what you will; it’s the music of young people in an era of chemical experimentation and social exploration. Most of the tracks presented here were recorded between 1966-68, a few earlier, a few later. All cuts sourced from See’s personal collection of 45s.

  1. I’m looking forward to hearing all of this, Derek, but I especially wanted to thank you for posting two of my all-time favorites…the Five Americans track is a killer and, being an Ann Arbor guy, I have a soft spot for Scott Morgan and the Rationals. This is my favorite record of theirs, too often overlooked on the flipside of their almost-hit cover of “Respect”
    Much obliged…
